Alan Rosenthal’s Lockshen pudding

A new twist on bubbe’s favourite. This vermicelli-packed pud actually contains a few of your five-a-day – with carrot and apple mixing in with the sultanas, spices and citrus zest.

Amir Batito’s Sweet sumac p’titim pudding

If you like rice pudding and risotto, you’re going to love this sticky, sweet dessert that also includes creamy labneh. Super simple and the ultimate comfort food.

Rukmini Iyers’s Shahi Tukra: Indian-spiced bread and butter pudding

A spiced up version of the classic frugal food that makes it dinner party-worthy. Use frozen berries for unless making in the summer months.

Shiri Kraus’s Spiced pumpkin bread pudding

The perfect way to use up any stale challah — I freeze any ends of my Friday night loaves for recipes like this. A multitude of spices and silan give this comfort bake a Middle Eastern twist.

Denise Phillips’s Chocolate chestnut and whisky truffle loaf

This indulgent dessert may not be warm but it’s packed with whisky, chestnuts and dates and is not only gluten free but parev. It’s also great for feeding a crowd as it can – and has to be – be made in advance.

Lisa Roukin’s Sticky toffee pudding with sesame caramel

This sticky, sweet, date-packed delight is wheat-free and finished with a deliciously different tahina sauce that will have you licking the plate clean.

Sarah Mann-Yeager’s Self-saucing orange pudding

This super simple pud magically makes its own zesty sauce. No need to add custard AND you can make it dairy or parev. Winning.
